The new Subnautica website has been launched! Some things are broken, including blog post comments and links in the forum navigation bar (They go to NS2 right now). We will be fixing things over the next few days!
Life is Digital
but what are we losing?I've been hardcore gaming since 6th grade when my friend let me borrow Starcraft for 2 days for 2 packs of snacks. Well hardcore as in just sitting on the pc for long periods of time, not "training" at games for perfection.
Then once I went online, it's been going everywhere. CS, NS, um, Guild Wars, yea.
Some guy said in the future, life will be represented in the 1950s. And the more I see it, the more it's true.
I thought it was convenient, but then you lose your attention to other things.
We race each other for the latest parts on our computer...
Games are a medium built on other purposes such as subliminal messages, competitions. We can play shooters and rpgs online, but not many play the essence of the game, or a board game.
I guess I'm overwhelmed now where it's leading. I could list the obvious stuff like people getting violent, no excercise, whatever, but I don't care about that. It's just that computers and all this digital stuff is becoming so intertwined with life, computers at home, laptops wherever, ipods in your pocket, sidekicks to talk with...
It's hard to just call a friend to play some ball, when they could be blasting some terrorist online.
I was kind of going about somewhere in my offtopic thread, but this one should be serious. I have a general idea, but I can't find the exact words for it.
We are all losers.
